Case against policeman dismissed

The case against a policeman, accused of assaulting and wounding a woman while arresting her, was dismissed yesterday in court because of the repeated non-appearance of the complainant.

Police Constable 414 Fabian Auberto was facing charges of unlawful assault and wounding of Sharon John on October 24, 2011.

Disclosure had been ordered and was not forthcoming, and this, coupled with the repeated non-appearance of the complainant and her counsel, left Magistrate Christine Phulchere with no choice but to dismiss the case against Auberto.

Magistrate Phulchere said she hopes the constable will never appear before her again as a defendant in a similar matter.
